For the longest time I have wanted a kitchen table with white legs, a wooden top and white chairs. I think a set like that is just beautiful and would match the look we are going for in our home just perfect! So I set out on a search – I have been to countless furniture stores and have several on my amazon wish list – but haven’t been able to find anything I love within my price range.
While browsing the internet one night for said table – I noticed that some of the photos I was looking at were “refinished” tables and I thought “I could do that!!!” and “why didn’t I think of that!?”
The next day I busted out my tool box and started taking apart my kitchen chairs so I could create my own Cherry and White Farmhouse Kitchen Table Revamp!

I used my kreg jig to drill pocket holes and attached my 1×6’s together.

I built a frame and a table skirt for the table top using 2×4’s and 1×4’s.

I love the contrast of the white against the cherry.

I attached the newly built table top to the base using 3″ screws and then stained it in place — with the back door open for good ventilation!
